Billy Davies: Nottingham Forest boss confronts Craig Pawson at the DW Stadium

Davies walked onto the DW Stadium pitch at the end of his side's 2-1 loss and gestured in the direction of referee Craig Pawson.

A statement on the FA website alleged Davies' "language and/or behaviour at the end of the match amounted to improper conduct".

The Forest manager largely kept his counsel in his post-match interviews but did hint he was upset by Pawson's refusal to award his side a second-half penalty when Chris Cohen tangled with Roger Espinoza.

He said: "It's up to you guys to watch the video and write what you saw.

"I'm not going to comment on whether it was or it wasn't. I know the answer to the question, but I'm not going to tell you."

errible night all round. This was a team there for the taking yet I fail to recall their 'keeper making a notable save. Sterling decided to have his worst game ever, Coutinho only provided about two good passes all game and Balotelli continues to frustrate. The less said about the set piece defending the better. Daniel Sturridge cannot came back soon enough. The lack of a real threat in the final third is so surprising, no killer pass, not testing...
